Don’t let the pink-accented walls, draped white curtains, and ultramodern chandelier fool you: New Hair Concept’s vibe is as mellow as they come. That’s because the staff strives to create a relaxing environment for clients who come in for hair, nail, or skin services—they even offer snacks and beverages. Clients will also find comfort in a complimentary consultation before stylists dive into haircuts, highlights, extensions, or blowouts that leave hair prepped for a night out or a night in reenacting Elvis movies. The staff also provides mani-pedis, facials, and eyebrow-shaping treatments.
"Quiet" isn't a word most people would use to describe a hair salon. But Hair by Greta is different. Greta runs a one-woman operation, and with her, clients get truly personalized service from a stylist who isn't distracted by the hectic goings-on at a full salon. In her upscale suite, she performs cut, color, extensions, and makeup applications with the masterful touch of a stylist boasting nearly a decade of professional experience.
Drama Studio's workspace is striking with its lime-green walls and black accents. And so are the custom looks the studio's create for each client. Waxing, manicures, and makeup application are among the salon's services, and the staff's specialties include applying vivid Redken hair color, formaldehyde-free keratin straightening treatments, and Aqua hair extensions.
Upon entering Robar Beauty Salon & Spa, a visitor might first notice the recently remodeled interior, splashes of canary yellow or vibrant fuchsia, or the smell of organic hair products wafting through the air. But owner William Robar—an industry veteran of almost 40 years—remembers his salad days in less prosperous locations. His first salon "was so busy I didn't know where to put the people!" he laughs, recalling its cramped layout. His clientele ranged from street criminals to drug dealers. "In those days it was wild. Every walk of life came into my salon."
Now a sought-after celebrity stylist, William has clipped and styled famous hair for Frank Sinatra, Barbara Walters, and President Bill Clinton, who needed a trim before delivering a presidential speech. Inside his upscale salon, William and his team of certified stylists use their fashion instincts and mastery of the sibilant scissor language to team up with shears and craft elegant coifs for men, women, and children.
For a dramatically different look, or just a professional style, leave your hair in Maia's hands.

Virgin hair extensions, Powerdose conditioning, or keratin-smoothing treatments transform hair with new texture or new lengths. Understanding that people have various schedules, Maia also accepts late-night appointments or will journey to clients to provide her beautifying services.
